Certified Coder Boot Camp®—Original


Course Overview

The premier CPC® exam preparation course for coders

The demand for CPC-certified coders has never been higher. If you want to take your career to the next level with certification, the Certified Coder Boot Camp will fully prepare you for the AAPC's Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam.

The Certified Coder Boot Camp teaches the fundamentals of CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS Level II coding for professional services and hospital outpatient services. The first day covers ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding, and the remaining four days are devoted to CPT and HCPCS II coding.

You will learn how to:

  • Understand and apply coding principles and rules appropriately

  • Navigate the ICD-10-CM, CPT, and HCPCS II coding manuals

  • Apply knowledge to AAPC's CPC exam

  • Develop fundamental coding skills for all medical specialties with a thorough study of the CPT manual

  • Master the art of accurate code assignment for ICD-10-CM, CPT, and HCPCS II by learning the latest coding guidelines

Leave class ready to take the CPC exam!

This isn't just any coding course. See the HCPro difference for yourself!

Rules-based learning: We only use recognized source authorities, such as the current ICD-10-CM, CPT, and HCPCS II manuals, but we supplement these with additional nationally recognized source authorities like the AHA's Coding Clinic for ICD-10-CM/PCS® and the AMA's CPT Assistant®.
Hands-on learning: Course participants work approximately 500 coding exercises, including a 150-question practice CPC exam and numerous operative reports. Each participant also receives a printed answer key for all exercises, including the practice exam. Students are required to bring CPT, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS II manuals to class so they can complete the exercises.
Small class size: Class size is limited to ensure individual attention.
Well-established program: HCPro is the nation's first organization to offer Boot Camp training courses to healthcare coding professionals. We have more than 10 years of experience teaching coders, and on average, participants rate this course 4.9 on a 5.0 scale.
